Are microbes and germs good for you? (2)

Like the atmosphere, the present surface of the earth is also a part of the creation of life.  Everywhere, under natural conditions, the topsoil is alive with insects, grubs, earthworms, etc, transforming it chemically and physically.  This is true whether the soil supports forest, prairies, tundra, grasslands, farmlands, gardens or parks.  

Organic gardeners have legitimate scientific reasons to claim that earthworms contribute as much as fertilizers to the fertility of the soil.  In fact, the microbial forms of life which are invisible to the naked eye are at least as important as earthworms and insects.  Every speck of humus contains billions of living germs, belonging to countless different varieties, each specialized in the decomposition and transformation of one or another type of organic debris derived from animals, plants, or other types of microbes.  The expert can often detect the activities of germs in the soil simply by handling and smelling it when warm and humid weather increases the intensity of microbial life.

Surprising as it may seem, germs account fort a large percentage of the total mass of living matter on the earth.

Are microbes and germs good for you? (6)

Experience shows that under usual conditions the remnants of animals and plants do not accumulate in nature.  Very rapidly they are consumed by germs and thereby taken through a chain of chemical alterations which break them down step by step into simpler compounds.

The germs themselves eventually die, and their bodies are also transformed by microbial action.  In this manner the constituents of all living things are returned to nature after death to be recycled.  Reduced to simpler forms, they are available for the creation of new microbial and plant life, which is eventually consumed by animals and human beings.

Microbes and germs thus constitute indispensable links in the chain that binds inanimate matter of life.

The innate intelligence that animate the living world, including us, needs no help, just no interference!!!

In common usage, the meaning of the word “nature” is rather limited.  It does not refer to planet earth as shaped by cosmic forces, yet almost exclusively to the living forms on which people depend and to the earth’s atmosphere and surface.  The interdependence between human beings and the other forms of life is so complete that the word nature usually has biological connotations, even when referring to inanimate substances.  In practice, we do not live on the planet earth but with the life it harbors and within the environment that life creates.

For examples, microbes, germs and viruses are microscopic and are about 400 times smaller than a surgical mask.  Yet surgeons do wear surgical masks don’t they?

Do YOU know your immune system?

Did you know your body has its own “army” ready to defend you  against harmful agents such as selective groups of bacteria, virus and germs?  This “army”  is your immune system, also called your body resistance.

It began to work when you were still within the womb of  your mother.  The innate intelligence of the body was using the placenta of you mother to manufacture antibodies and interferons that are released within your blood stream to provide you with your first “battalion” to help you fight off potential invaders.  Then as you were born and were fed your other’s breast milk (we hope), you received via this human milk your second “battalion” of antibodies.

Then 3 to 4 weeks later, the innate intelligence of the body began to manufacture its very own “troops” of antibodies and interferons through a small gland called the thymus.  Your innate intelligence also manufacrures what is called gammaglobulin and immunoglobin (two principal defense agents).

Of course your spleen with some other organs and glands are also used by your innate intelligence to produce natural immunity providing you with the most sophisticated warfare weapons against any harmful invaders of your body.

How can we protect ourselves against diseases?

Watching television, you would think we live at bay, in total jeopardy, surrounded on all sides by enemies, human-seeking germs, shielded against infection and death on by a chemical technology that enable us to keep killing them off.

We are instructed to spray disinfectants everywhere, into the air of our bedrooms and kitchens and with special energy into our bathrooms, since it is our very own germs that seem the worst kind.

We explode clouds of aerosol into our noses, mouths, underarms, privileged crannies… even into the intimate insides of our telephones.
